What is a circular economy?

It is an economy in which products and materials retain their value for as long as possible. Waste and resource use are minimised. And, when a product reaches the end of its life, its resources are maintained in the economic cycle to be used again and again in order to re-create value.

Circular economy has many advantages for businesses: reducing energy and raw material consumption, developing new products, processes or services with high added value, limiting the risks associated with fluctuating raw material prices or resource shortages, pooling infrastructures, resources and services... And much more!

Public authorities

Circular economy represents a key lever for public authorities to respond to environmental challenges (climate change, increasing scarcity of resources, loss of biodiversity), while supporting the economic fabric of their region and creating local jobs.

Circular consumption means moving towards alternative, more responsible modes of consumption that enable us to consume better and spend less. Behind every citizen lies a consumer who, at his/ her own level, can become a player in the transition to a more circular economy that is more respectful of the environment.
